Enable translating CNBanner messages in zh-* languages on meta
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Due to T39338: $wgTranslateBlacklist of zh-* on metawiki translation of zh-* sub-variants are blocked. However this is needed as zh banners are not displayed for zh-* users.

Two ways to fix this:

0) Revert T39338 or modify it to unblock zh-hans and zh-hant
e.g.

  1. Allow CNBanners to ignore the blacklist or have a separate set
  2. Language conversion for CNBanners (ideal solution)

Currently change in T39338 pretty much breaks the translation workflow as the only way around it is for a translator to ask an administrator to edit the MediaWiki message.

Actually bug 49905 is required to complete the resolution of this bug ... anyway this bug was filed in MediaWiki Extension product and there was / have to be some work in the extension itself (which was done), so I'm creating a new one now.
